city of nebraska medical center college of public health he's joining us now on skype from omaha nebraska thank you very much for being with us how strong is the argument that medical teams may have actually relaxed a bit too much after declaring the last break officially over. none at all there's no reason to suspect that this outbreak in eastern congo which is twenty five hundred kilometers away from the last outbreak are related so i think the bigger issue is what are the systems in place to detect these outbreaks of ebola in your estimation are there systems in place to be able to contain these recent outbreaks. so in this case we have these twenty six cases twenty deaths including two health care workers and there's a suspicion that these cases at least have been going on since july so that suggests that a month has gone by before this outbreak was contained what we saw in the last outbreak we hope to see in this outbreak which is
3:01 am
a really active response vaccination of contacts and hopefully hopefully shut the outbreak down very quickly unfortunately this outbreak is in an active conflict zone on the border rwanda and uganda which is very different from the location of the last outbreak and that's going to pose a challenge itself in the response what kind of challenges are you going to face as you rightly say there is fighting going on between the armed groups there but also of course it is on the border between rwanda and uganda and people are passing across the border all the time how great are the risks as well from the conflict as you mentioned but also from people actually passing the virus across the border into the neighboring countries absolutely spot on so with the ball essentially you need one case to serve as an ember for a large epidemic and that's exactly what happened in west africa where they had over eleven thousand deaths so hopefully this outbreak will be contained very quickly but if it's not a single individual gets out potentially to
3:02 am
a health care facility in a different country and is very infectious that they could lead to a large amount of spread or to a large metropolitan area if i decided correctly one of the things that counted the previous break and led to it being declared officially over was the fight the medical teams were bringing in experimental vaccines in order to be able to deal with it are we likely to see a repetition of that now that it appears to have worked in the previous case. absolutely and not are we likely we're hoping that's exactly what happens so prevent so getting these outbreaks to shut down is a function of finding sick individuals and moving them to treatment centers where they can't infect anybody else including health care workers finding individuals who have died and make sure they have safe burials and a critical component of finding contacts and vaccinating them against ebola and we now have lots of data that vaccinating people against these contacts against paula
3:03 am
brands additional infections one of the issues if i understand it correctly from the previous outbreak and in fact from our breaks prior to that one was the lack of information the lack of understanding of how this the virus spreads how this illness can spread is that still the case and is there a wider issue about how about the education surrounding ball in the country so there's no lack of information from a scientific standpoint we know exactly what happens the disease is natural in bats and people get infected directly from bats or from eating infected bushmeat and then if there can be a large amount of person to person spread during a funeral or potentially during a how key are in a health care setting so we know the science of ebola but what's missing is the education of communities to help them understand that sometimes in the midst of all these people who have fever and getting sick and dying there's potentially cases of
3:04 am
a bolo that are very contagious and can infect others within the community so that's where the education needs to happen and to make sure that such individuals are quickly moved to health care centers to ensure that there aren't these funerals where you keep touching people and infecting others and within how care settings to ensure there's good infection control practices dr ali khan thank you so much for your time and thanks for joining us and all just here thank you for the opportunity . opposition leader and former rebel commander banda has returned to democratic republic of congo to a hero's welcome after ten years in prison for war crimes bamba flew back from the netherlands after a successful appeal at the international criminal court in the hague is already said he wants to run in december's presidential elections catherine sawyer was with the cheering crowds in the capital kinshasa. when john pair bambara marched from the airport in the democratic republic of congo's capital kinshasa thousands of his
